The technology area concerned with safeguarding all connected devices to the network. This is becoming a real threat to the security landscape. Many challenges arise from preventing IoT devices from connecting to the corporate network. These device companies are more interested in getting their products to market quickly, rather than taking the needed steps to build them with security in mind from the start. Major issues cited with IoT security is the hardcoded or default passwords, which leads to potential security breaches once they are exposed. These devices should be controlled with some management and corporate policy.
